Trisodium phosphate, also known as Sodium phosphate tribasic is a white, grainy or crystalline solid. It forms a basic solution after getting soluble in water. This solid acts actively as a washing agent, food additive and lubricant. Hence, it has significant uses in the food industry and commercially organized products. Trisodium phosphate has the key property of decreasing acid, thereby by helping to balance out the pH levels of foods. It can prevent the too acidic or too basic nature of an edible.
